The Israeli Occupation Authorities (IOA) banned over the past week the travel of 40 Palestinians via al-Karama crossing, the only pathway that connects Palestinians in the West Bank to the outside world through Jordan.
Palestinian police in Ramallah said, in a press statement on Saturday, that 40 Palestinians were prevented from leaving the West Bank from the al-Karama border crossing for unknown security reasons.
The police pointed out that some 31,000 Palestinians passed through the crossing last week. The police, however, arrested 34 Palestinians at the same border crossing.
